Thats a little ridiculous. It gets pretty annoying too because you rarely find someone selling a tank for a reasonable price. Just because the tank has a fresh hydro doesnt mean its still worth 90% of the original price! It still has precious years of life taken out of it!!!
It's just because it's currently what the market price is going for. As long as people continue to pay those prices for used tanks, those are the prices that they're going to continue to sell for.
It shouldn't really bother you though. If the price is so close to that of a new tank, then it's a no brainer to purchase the new tank.
The pricing of used tanks was a deal breaker for me, so I went ahead and bought brand new. Aside from the fact that my older tank was only a three year hydro, opposed to a newer tank that had a five year hydro, there was pricing that played a part in my decision as well as customer service.
